I am hard on Democrats. And to be fair, I should really be more clear and rail against Liberals. After all, I am SURE there are some decent minded Democrats out there. The problem is, however, that Democrats are forced to keep supporting Liberals….and THAT makes me look at ’em sideways.
Anyway, the recent TSA hullaballu has me laughing at people. And in this case, I’m mostly laughing at the Right.
See, one day there was a President in the White House that passed laws and initiated policies that restricted person Liberty. THAT President was George W. Bush.
And when he passed these laws, the Right was loud in his defense:
We HAVE to protect the Homeland from Islamic Terrorism!
They were only too willing to let the government do any old thing in the name of national defense.
And now that the Obama Administration has authorized enhanced pat downs and body scans…the Right has suddenly found their inner Libertarian and is claiming foul.
I call Bull Shit.
This is classic We vs. They nonsense.
Oh, and the second thing that makes me laugh?
The TSA was created as part of the Aviation and Transportation Security Act passed by the U.S. Congress, and signed into law by President George W. Bush on November 19, 2001. Originally part of the U.S. Department of Transportation, the TSA was moved to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security on March 25, 2003.
Republicans have no one to blame but themselves for what they consider “Too Much Invasion”.
